Hey all. I'm sure Jcrew isn't the #1 choice (especially at this price point) for most of you for raw denim. However, I really like their 484 fit (roomier thighs, good taper) so I wanted to get a pair.

However, I can't decide on which to go with. Any opinions? I'm leaning towards the #2 as they aren't such deep indigo. However, I'm wondering if those might produce a better look once faded.

^I recognize that. However, I really like the fit of 484... and fit is the most important factor here.

I have posted this in the jean thread now, but as a reply cannot be voted upon, I was hoping that having it's own post would helpful. But so far, noone has voted anyway, ha.

484 = APC ps
post #6 of 17
is 484 exactly a copy of petit standards?

size 32 484 = size 31 PS for me

APC is cheaper and probably better made anyway. And that's really saying something since APCs aren't exactly the pinnacle of quality in this market.

Is APC cheaper? Can we make a poll?

holy ! $225? 

 

Was expecting $89.99.  At that price point, you can do better man.

Haha even the normal jcrew 484 are more than $90.

Does anyone have measurements of APC PS in size 29? If the measurements are similar than I will ultimately go with those. I am just looking for something with a good taper yet roomier thighs and not too low of a rise.

First of all, I am going to go ahead and highly recommend you don't buy the J crew selvedge. This looks like a serious money grab to me. Not anywhere on the site does it say where they are made. I have been in the denim game for a long time, and so have a lot of people on SF. And they will all tell you the same: If selvedge costs more than $200 you have the right to know where they were made.

Here is the APC PS measurements.

Even if those measurements aren't what you are looking for, you should just give us the measures for the J crew pair and we WILL find you another pair of jeans for the same price that will put those to shame.

Roomy thigh, good taper? Pretty sure the Petite Standard is exactly what you're looking for. Don't be afraid to size down 1 or even 2, they will stretch.

j.crew.com mentions that the denim is from japan.
